      15 years? Doesn't that mean it's long overdue to be completely scrapped so that something entirely new can be made from the ground up? /s

        There was a move for that http://www.h-online.com/open/news/it...x-1582071.html

        but AFAICT it never actually went anywhere

          Got superceded by cups-filters

          So the Linux implementation of CUPS is actually substantially different from whatever Mac is using.

              I wonder if they use Bash for anything.

                GNU TLS in favor of OpenSSL

                Why drop OpenSSL in favor for GNU TLS?
                Is it because the Heartbleed vulnerability and diminished credibility of OpenSSL?

                Is GNU TLS good? Does it have any advantages and/or disadvantages over OpenSSL?
                Is GNU TLS better than OpenSSL?

                  Does anybody know if they are finally adding stateless support by splitting up their config and state files?
                  Haven't seen anything in the changelog but really hoped they would change their policy and finally do it.

                    No, it's simply what Apple are using for their SSL needs.
                    And don't worry, GNU TLS will come with its own fair share of bugs (see Gotofail)

                    Probably the next big change every will be complaining about after systemd, once that one has become mainstream. :-)
